Computer Laboratory

Malcolm Scott

photoI am a sysadmin and PhD student at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory.

Wearing my researcher hat, I design protocols for data centres. One of my projects is MOOSE, a system to improve the scalability of Ethernet; another is WAPITI to enable network-layer mobility (of virtual machines, primarily) at scale.

Wearing my sysadmin hat, I am building and running a data centre for research and experimentation within the lab and beyond.

My ramblings

I (very) occasionally write articles for syslog, the blog of the SRG.
